The first baseball team to use numbers on uniforms was the 1916 Cleveland Indians when they wore small numbers on the sleeves of their uniforms, as a way of identifying the players. This practice was short lived.in 1929 the New York Yankees decided to wear numbers to the backs of their jerseys. The numbers corresponded to each player's general position in the lineup.for example Babe Ruth wore No. 3, since he usually batted third, and Lou Gehrig wore No. 4 as he batted fourth.High unifrom numbers arehanded out to rookies, and players that most likely will not make the team out of spring training. Number 68 is more of a number handed out to a football player. The Yankees have retired a lot of numbers but, it could be a real long time before they get to 68.
